VIDEO OF THE WEEK: THE HIGHWAYMEN – ‘HIGHWAYMAN’
November 13, 2017
The pedigree on display here is stunning enough – a country supergroup of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings – but throw in the fifth element of the celebrated songwriter Jimmy Webb and you know that you’ve got something truly special.
Each of the singers takes on the persona of the soul at the centre of the song that reincarnates throughout the passing of the years. Such was the track’s popularity that it topped the US country charts and Jimmy Webb nabbed a Grammy for Best Country Song in 1985.
